DIY Polymer Clay Jewelry Organizer

Well, I must confess that working with clay is not that easy as I have imagined...especially because it was an air-dry clay, that after some molding , shaping and reshaping it lost its flexibility. But I have done it and what resulted is quite spectacular :-) Well...I'll let you be the judge of that.

At first, I had no idea what I wanted to do....a plate, a bowl, a doll, some jewelry...but than it hit me: all my earrings were laying around the house, in boxes, on glasses or bags. I had no beautiful place  to display them for my customers. So I decided to make myself a jewelry organizer / holder and it was really fun. I made a polymer clay frame, that I gave an old golden vintage patina. Of course, you can also use it for framing a picture or a painting. You choose its purpose.

Here is what you need:
1. Fimo Air dry polymer clay
2. an old patterned tray
3. cutter
4. wax paper
5. hammer
6. cutter
7. cardboard
8. net
9. acrylic paints + paintbrushes
10. super strong glue
11. ruler

A couple of weeks back, I received a message from Alex from Dawanda, asking me if I want to join a contest organized by them, where I should create something with a surprise item I would receive in the mail. Of course I accepted the challenge, I said yes, and 1 week later, I open the beautiful wrapped envelope.
It was a FIMO Air polymer clay package. Now.....I must think to make something creative :-)
Any thoughts? I am open to suggestions, as I have never played with clay before.

SO, after I make something creative, I will need you support to win a 100€ voucher t…
